    for Big Radio. If they refuse to be accountable for what they broadcast, then the shouldn't whine about what it costs them when people object. There is a lesson here, and they are refusing to learn it.

    Being "pro-life" means believing that every child born has a right to food, education, and access to health care.

    •  I don't care either (9+ / 0-)

      I'm in the biggest, bluest urban market in Ohio (Cleveland). We can get Rush Limbaugh and all his buddies, but no progressive talk. When I drive down to Columbus, there's a spot on I-71 where I once got Rush on FOUR stations simultaneously.

      Few people I know listen to radio anymore (except for the NPR diehards). Radio has nothing to offer. It needs a reality check.

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07. http://www.ewaynepowell.com/

      Yes, they are free to say what they want, but they have to accept the consequences of their actions.
      Just as in the outside-the-radio world, if you're going to be a @#$%, people are not going to want to spend time with you.

      Everybody got to elevate from the norm....
